the federal aviation administration saying that these should be put off. they say the law allows the faa and the administration to cut somewhere else in the 16 billion-dollar annual budget of the faa. they say the way the faa were cuts makes the delays even worse. >> under the applicable laws. the faa has the authority or the discretion to find the money elsewhere. not to lay off the workers. and, therefore, to protect the traveling and shipping public, the faa should not furlough the air traffic controllers. now congressional republicans charge the way the administration has structured this is simply for political reasons. the administration says that's absolutely not the case. they say the way is law isten o other choices than to furlough these air traffic controller if they have to reach the savings that the law requires, shep. >> >> shepard: we are expecting it to say four different flight delays faa is saying. airlines anywhere between 6700. about a quarter of the flight traffic in this country daily. in a statement the faa says they will be working with the airlines and using traff

. that is because there are fewer air traffic controllers on the job. the faa called for two furlough days for every two-week period to cut more than $600 million from the budget. airlines filed a lawsuit on friday asking a federal court to stop the furlough of air traffic controllers. they say that these cuts in hours will result in travel delays of up to an hour. a travel industry analyst says what's happening is political gamesmanship. >> the faa was shut down a few years ago, flights weren't affected. it seems to me like there is a request or directive out there to take steps so that passengers will be inconvenienced and that they will call their elected officials to get them to take action. >> reporter: here's a live picture of mineta san jose international airport. i only found one 30-minute delay this morning and a couple of 10-minute delays in oakland and sfo is on time. even if sfo avoids furloughs, travelers here could still feel the pinch because of the domino effect from delays at connecting airports. at sfo, elissa harrington, kpix 5. >> airlines say up to 6700 flights per day could be

air traffic controllers must take one day off a week. the faa said planes will have to take off and land more frequently. that would translate to potential longer lines at the airport. joining me is the spokesperson for sfo. can you give me an idea of how many travelers will be out on every given day or? >> what i can tell you, it's about a 10% of reduction. if i'm an air traffic controller, one of my days out of ten is reduced as the furlough. >> reporter: do you have any idea if this will impact the lines? >> i think where we might see some effect is more from the faa perspective. i don't know if it will affect the lines at the airport. but in terms of flight delays, if there's another airport that has congestion issues or staffing issues, even if we're fined locally, we may experience delays to and from the location. it's very much a nationwide issue. >> reporter: it's a juggling act for you. i think one of the things we can expect, there is a procedure we use and that requires an extra controller. not an issue today but if we have bad weather conditions, we might not be able
